Thinking of You

Hey everybody! Well, another weekend has come and gone, and here we are on Monday! I hope you have a great week coming up! I have a pretty Tape Runner DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring die cut shapes from Spellbinders. And of course, all panels were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner. I made this card for someone very dear to me who was going through a rough time. I thought the gold accents were so pretty and cheerful.

As mentioned above, all panels were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner. Wet glue was used only to adhere the doily and pearls, and the two elements with the gold accents were popped up on foam squares. I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from Basis Blue, Bright Gold Foil and 80# Solar White cardstock. Using the Prickley Pear Stamps Chicken Wire Background stamp and Catherine Pooler Tranquil, Stone Blue and Cove Blue inks, I stamped the background, cut it with the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics, and layered the panels together. I cut a doily from 80# Solar White cardstock using the Spellbinders Medallion Four die and adhered it to the card front along with several small die cut hearts. I adhered the flowers and sentiment with Scrapbook Adhesives 3-D Foam Squares, and added several white pearls which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with leftover strips from the background and gold foil used on the front. I added a die cut sentiment and layered the panel on Basis Blue cardstock.

And one more peek… such a pretty card and I’m loving all the layers and touches of gold! And it’s great to have Tape Runner to hold it all together! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
